What is 14K Gold-Filled?
Gold-filled is a durable and ecological alternative to solid gold
In order to be in compliance with the French law, I need to stamp my makers mark with my initials (ACM) on each of my gold-filled and Sterling Silver jewelry. The gold-filled stamp is a square shape and the sterling silver stamp is a rhombus shape.
Why you should choose Gold-Filled jewelry :
Gold Filled is a very interesting alternative to solid gold:
* hypoallergenic: if you tolerate gold, you will tolerate gold-filled
* very resistant: it does not tarnish, it does not flake. If you take care of it, it will last a lifetime
* environmental friendly: gold is a precious metal whose exploitation is often very polluting. Choosing gold-filled rather than solid gold is a gesture for the preservation of the environment.
How to take care of your jewelry:
Soak your jewelry in warm water and use a regular soap. Gently scrub it with a soft toothbrush to clean it. You can also use your fingers and gently rub. Rinse your piece of jewelry and pat it down using the polishing cloth (included in your order) to shine & polish.
